BELLEVUE SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Bellevue School District (BSD) is the lead organization in a Place-Based Partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue (BGC), KidsQuest Children’s Museum, and YMCA of Greater Seattle’s Bellevue branch. They are collaborating specifically to serve McKinney-Vento students by offering free access to BSD’s before- and after-school care (as well as free access to BGC programs, free memberships to KidsQuest, and free memberships to the YMCA). The BSK OST investment expands this partnership, which is now able to serve homeless students year-round.
